Your Views: Nation needs prayers to bring us more effective leadership

Back during Apollo 13's disaster in outer space, prayers went up by the millions. The Catholic Pope had millions praying. The priests in Jerusalem had thousands praying. Many other countries had their people praying for the Apollo 13 crew.

Your Views: Obama shows he cares with health law to protect people

His enemies have named it "Obamacare" as a slur, but our new health care law is aptly named because Obama really does care. He crafted this legislation for the people and he will fight for us and for our best interests through a forest of curses and gritted teeth. We have a champion.

Your Views: Roads sales tax would boost tourism in area

On behalf of the local and regional tourism industry, I am writing in support of the upcoming T-SPLOST referendum to improve our roadways.

Your Views: State’s road project costs will rise over 10 years with sales tax

Why you should think twice before voting on the T-SPLOST 1 percent sales tax on July 31:

Your Views: Ballot doesn’t tell full story on sales tax

When you see the July 31, Hall County official ballot, take a hard look at the last item, Special Election, Referendum 1, T-SPLOST.

Your Views: ‘No’ to T-SPLOST; target 1 cent of current tax for road projects

Would you sell your soul for a penny? Would you condemn your neighbor to eternal debt for a penny?

Your Views: Race in election is not a factor if there are only whites on ballot

Surely Michael Hawkins's letter of June 22 was tongue in cheek. During the more than 50 presidential elections before Barack Obama ran in 2008, with the possibility of a few write-in votes, every white person who voted for president voted for a white man. Surprise, Mr. Hawkins - during those same elections, every person of color also voted for a white man.

Your Views: State should require boaters to pass course

How many boating accidents, how many boating injuries, how many boating fatalities will it take before we have had enough?

Your Views: As Ike said, we can’t risk our future with debt

From the farewell address by Dwight D. Eisenhower in January 1961: "We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow."

Your Views: Don’t turn our backs on future; vote ‘yes’ for roads sales tax

Sometimes it's better to receive. Would you turn your back on $360 million?

Your Views: Do you trust giving more money to governments? Say 'no' to T-SPLOST

I intend to vote "no" on the proposal to add an additional 1-cent sales tax to give the Department of Transportation (75 percent) and local governments (25 percent) more money to spend.

Your Views: Know what sales tax covers

On page 4 of Sunday's issue of The Times there is a list of the T-SPLOST exemptions. Notable among the missing is any mention of a food and medicine exemption.

Your Views: Hard to assume only race sways Obama backers

I write to present a clear answer to the letter of June 20 by Thomas Day.

Your Views: Think of transportation sales tax as an investment in our success

Everyone tends to think of T-SPLOST as an innovative way to pay for roads. I see it differently.

Your Views: Selma’s lesson still rings true: We should make our voices heard

Several weeks ago, we looked back at the historic march that began in Selma, Ala., in March 1965. This event was a painful time in our nation's history, but a time that we can all gather great strength from.

Your Views: A baker’s dozen buzzwords we ought to banish

Many people are like sheep concerning buzzwords. One participates and the rest follow the herd. Eventually, a buzzword becomes annoying, trite and ready for banishment.

Your Views: Future sales tax votes should be on fall ballots

The front page headline Sunday in The Times read "Where have all the voters gone?" Let's go back just a few months to the fall of 2014 when midterm elections were in the news. Recall The Times writing about how politicians in Hall County were concerned that SPLOST VII would not be passed by voters for a seventh time if SPLOST VII was placed on the November 2014 ballot?

Your Views: Bullying is hurtful at any age, even when aimed at principal

I read with concern the two recent items in The Times regarding alleged bullying at Myers Elementary (March 7 article, March 19 letter to the editor). Quite honestly, I was confused; I thought perhaps I had read the name of the school incorrectly, and even more confused when I read the principal involved in the articles. I started shaking my head, thinking,"Are you kidding me? Are they really accusing Beth Hudgins of dealing improperly with a situation so potentially hurtful?"

Your Views: Myers Elementary principal is a ‘rare gem’ in handling students

I am writing in response to the article, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville" of March 7. It saddened me to read such negative words about Beth Hudgins.

Your Views: America should take care of its own needy first

I recently read in The Times, and I was not really surprised, what sweet idea America has now: Tens of thousands of immigrant children are allowed here, in the good old u.s.a. via Florida.

Your Views: Erasing the color line would make for a better world

Amidst the horror and grief of Selma and Ferguson, I heard a tender story that I would like to share with our readers.

Your Views: GOP senators need to stop spewing hate

Mary Drummer is right on about Georgia's senators being wrong to have sent a letter to Iran. They are certainly overstepping their place and proving once again that they, of the Republican party, are incapable of sensibly leading this country's government.

Your Views: Principal at Myers Elementary is qualified to keep bullying incidents in check

I am writing in response to the article from March 7, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville." As a parent of a child in elementary school, the subject is concerning to me. However, I am not worried at all because my child goes to Myers Elementary School. I'm not worried because I have 100 percent faith in my son's teacher and his principal to do the right thing for my child, and those in his class.

Your Views: Housing market still is pointed upward this year in Hall County

There have been some recent headlines about home sales falling. Those headlines are misleading. Housing sales look different from one month to another and from one quarter to another.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.
